scom missing performance counters

I recently had to make some changes to my scom test environment server. It’s a single virtual machine with scom, sql, ssrs, the works on it. Despite what one would think, it has performed well with about 30 agents. Recently I added about that many more and it pushed up the ram to the 4gb max that I had given it. When I added more I realized I had used 2008 x32 for the OS (oops) and was not able to see the extra ram. After some research I found that I could do an upgrade from 2008 standard to enterprise, which is what I did. Afterwards, scom wouldn’t run because the SDK service would not start. This is the event log message.

After some research I found this article from Microsoft that contains instructions on how to fix this problem.
